Update on Go Formal For Freedom 2020
It is with great disappointment that we share that this year’s Go Formal For Freedom gala cannot move forward next Friday, March 20, as planned. Due to the widespread uncertainty that coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing in our communities, GAIN’s priority is the safety and well-being of our community members over our celebration next week. Postponing this event is the right and only action we can take.
The Go Formal For Freedom gala is our largest single fundraiser, providing a significant portion of GAIN’s annual operating budget each year, ensuring our ability to carry forth our mission to provide free immigration legal services to victims of crime and persecution. Because of the deep investment of our sponsors and event guests, GAIN has been able to successfully hold this event for 7 years. While we regret that we will not be able to celebrate 15 years of GAIN with you next week, please know that GAIN’s work on behalf of our clients continues even as we write this.
We still plan to have an event for our sponsors, donors, and friends to celebrate with us later this year.
Thank you again for your investment in GAIN. Our community, clients, and volunteers are what moves us forward. Together, we will continue to work on behalf of our immigrant clients for as long as it takes.
